  • ‘Batwoman’ Casts Javicia Leslie as New Series Lead

After the news, the German-born actress posted an incredibly positive message on her Instagram: "For all of the little black girls dreaming to be a superhero one day.it's possible!"

It is official, Javicia Leslie will replace Ruby Rose as the series lead in Season 2 of The CW series Batwoman.

Show creator Caroline Dries later explained on Twitter that it was not Kate Kane who was being recast, but the role of Batwoman, and Kate is not being killed off. Unlike Kate, Ryan spent her life doing what it took to survive in Gotham, including pushing drugs and clashing with the city's police officers, all the while sticking true to her own personal code of ethics that's likely to factor largely into her character.

Living in her van with a plant, she's a far cry from the classic origin story of a wealthy Kathy Kane and even the updated Kate Kane, expelled from military academy after outing herself as a lesbian. An out lesbian. Athletic. Raw.

'I am so glad Batwoman will be played by an unbelievable Black woman, ' Rose continued.

Fans were shocked to hear Rose was quitting her role as Kate Kane on the series - which streams on Binge - after only one season, with rumours circling her time on set was "miserable". This casting change also makes the whole reason they race-bent Julia Pennyworth last season extra "funny" in retrospect, considering now there will be a Black woman under the cowl.

Javicia Leslie will be seen leading in the second season of the US TV show "Batwoman", slated for release in January.
